Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I started re-reading Out of the Silent Planet last month as I felt the need for refreshment rather than challenge...
It was delightful to re-engage with Lewis' spectucular approach to space travel. I love the sensation of light in this novel and the beautiful descriptions of the planet that the hero is forcibily removed to.
I know that some people have told me that they have struggled with the images on "Mars" but for me it is always refreshing and renewing to read Lewis' prose. I also enjoyed his discussions on arch-types throughout the universe.
If you enjoy space travel and discovering new worlds, this is one to try!
